Excitement, adventure, a Jedi needs not these things!
Thankfully I am not a Jedi, but the Star Wars movies would be rather dull if Yoda were in charge. I'm revisiting some of the old Star Wars books, a staple of my young life, and rather interesting to read from an adult perspective (have I really grown up?). I can't say I like what they did in the later books, bringing in some weird alien force from outside the galaxy, but some of the earlier ones are as much fun to read as the movies are to watch (and some are down right terrible). It will be interesting to see what the upcoming movie will entail, though it seems they'll just ignore the 'expanded universe,' hit the reset button like they did with Star Trek, and move on from there. Any bets on whether Leia gets her own song and dance number like all proper Disney Princesses?
